Not. Taking. The. Bait.

You know, I never cease to be amazed at how something as basic as confirming and refining someone's notion of how focal length and format interact can provoke some people to conjure up a controversy.

Whereas I never cease to be amazed that people seem to think that any discussion of format equivalence that goes beyond AOV is too esoteric and confusing to mention.

One can only wonder...

Ditto.

Sigh.

So it's all about AOV, and any mention of any other equivalence (e.g. DOF, noise, and diffractions) is simply "confusing" and "unnecessary" information? Don't be shy -- spell it out.
